the injured, two u.s. air force reservists and one navy service member. earlier today, president obama spoke about the tragedy. >> my daughters go to the movies. what if malia and sasha had been at the theater as so many of our kids do every day. michelle and i will be fortunate enough to hug our girls a little tighter tonight and i'm sure you will do the same with your children, but for those parents who may not be so lucky, we have to embrace them and let them know we will be there for them as a nation. so again, i'm so grateful that all of you are here. i am so moved by your support, but there are going to be other days for politics. this i think is a day for prayer and reflection. >> joining me today, "time" magazine deputy washington bureau chief, michael crowley and patricia murphy, contributor to the daily beast. certainly a day of reflection. we are all still processing a lot as it comes to the details of this tragedy. michael, i want to talk about the president's comments, saying this isn't a day for politics, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling
is restored. we have rob gold from b.g.e. joining us on the phone. i know you guys are making progress. i've seen it myself. the routes are back on on route 140 yesterday, what is the situation this morning? >> we have making progress. we have over 600 out-of-state utility workers that are coming en route to us and they'll be augmenting the fight. the problem really was as was the case with irene or any other storm that is the nature of this damage, it's taking manpower to get out there, cut away the trees, understand what you have and get the lights and power back on by restoring all of the pieces of equipment that keep our service on on a regular basis. >> you guys know it's hot so you're working as fast as you can. >> well, we are. the problem is, though, i think -- think about society. our expectations have all changed. and we want our power back on now. and i think people forget very quickly the sound of that storm as it rolled through, the feeling of the house shaking. this was violent. and the reality is it took a lot of toll on our system and not just our system. this was the en
aviv. he is visiting the key u.s. ally a place that obama has yet to visit since coming to the white house. i'm healther childers. >> i'm kelly wright. he is spending 36 hours in israel. including prime minister benjamin netanyahu. ahead of his trip he signed a bill reaffirming the united states commitment to israel and the administration announced additional defense funding for the jewish state. molly henneberg is live in washington, d.c. where she has been following all this. critics say the actions were timed to upstage governor's romney's visit. >> the white house says no to that. governor romney says he will not criticize president obama directly while he is overseas but romney has spoken previously while in the u.s. of obama's administration shabby treatment of israel. the israeli people deserve better than what they received from the leader of the free world. he is romney on the plane to israel today. israel is fearful of a nuclear attack by iran and governor romney will make the case he would be tougher with iran than president obama. he said in an interview with an israeli p
, must be because i was just so smart. there are a lot of smart people out there. bill: take us into the mind frame for a comment like that. white house would come out and argue and i imagine they will government has a purpose and that was the point the president was trying to make. the point you're making this goes back to his days a as community organizer. explain that. >> well, i think in essence when you're a community organizer you're basically dealing with a lot of people disadvantaged you're trying to get them government assistance or welfare checks or whatever and the other part of the story though is that people who are creating jobs are getting up every day and going to work and working very, very hard. this should be a campaign celebrating the american worker. his story in itself is successful story. bill: president obama. >> president obama. i think to certain extent but reflect as mindset. it is the mindset the contrast between what romney and his campaign will be about. we can again become a great leader of the world as we always have been. we can get americans bac
% of the total u.s. international traffic. so i -- for that as a predicate, i'd ask you based upon that dependence we have i guess is the best word, what can you tell us about the importance of this -- of this treaty as -- just as it relates to that 95% dependency that we have on that transmission? >> well, we invest a great deal, senator, and making these cables as redundant as we can. we use the term mesh networks and if you think about it as a fence, can you cut certain pieces of it, but there are other pieces of the network that are redundant and therefore so are in some ways the government, i guess. to make sure that our customers can rely on that service. that helps us when we have things like storms or earthquakes that sever the cable, but if the country takes some sort of a unilateral action such as we have seen and doesn't frankly support some of the repair operations that we had in vietnam, and i refer to that in my testimony where it took many months to get those cables repaired, that really can impact global commerce, and so the framework that we will have in place with
, of american workers. slapping a trade complaint against the chinese for jacking up prices on u.s. cars. he takes a political whack at mitt romney in the process. reminding voters that there's a big difference between outsourcer in chief and commander in chief! >> i want good ships around the world stamped with "made in america." >> obama: my experience has been in saving the american auto industry and as long as i'm president, that's what i'm going to be doing. waking up every single day thinking about how we can create more jobs for your families and more security for your communities. >> jennifer: all right. that's president obama in ohio today. announcing a trade complaint against china. the u.s. sells about 92,000 cars a year to china. made in the u.s., sold in china worth about $3.3 billion. so president obama's action is in response to these harsh tariffs that the chinese imposed on cars like jeeps and cadillacs which jack up their cost by as much as 22%. when products get more expensive, obviously there's less d

, killing four government officials there. this morning, regime forces are still on the attack, using helicopter gunships to bomb bord rebel-held neighborhoods in the capitol. we have a reporter live in jerusalem. dominic? >> reporter: jamie, state tv showing government forces trying to take key areas back from the rebel hands. hoeing pictures too graphic for us to show on fox news of rebels that were killed during that fighting and some of their injuries absolutely horrific. which shows how intense the fighting has been in the capitol. we understand that the districts of mezeh and barzeh have fallen back. 180 people killed in the past 24 hours from activists and opposition. we understand that the rebels have turned their fights on the second city of syria alebo, the economic heartland. apparently, they are making a run for the airports. we understand that the intelligence bureau's main building is under attack. and witnesseses -- witnesses are describing intensive fighting. they are making ground in other parts of the country, taking a border post on the frontier with turkey. we unde
, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling for unity. what did you make of his comments? >> it's always a fine line because there are a lot of people who don't want to be hearing about politics, they don't want -- people want to be very careful about not exploiting a terrible tragedy like this. there is a pretty credible counterargument that says you don't turn it into a political fight where you're trying to get an advantage over your enemies and exploit it but i do think it's reasonable to have a national conversation about the context, about why these things happen, whether there are things we can do to prevent tragedies like this. if a plane crashes because you think the aircraft control system wasn't working, you would talk about how to reform it. but guns is such a volatile loaded subject, i think someone like obama and probably mitt romney are going to step back because they know that walking into that conversation immediately just turns into a distorted politicized -- >> mitt romney is expected to make remarks in the next few minutes. we'll bring
's going on in this case now. >> ed lavandera on the scene for us as he's been right from the beginning. thank you. elsewhere, in maryland, police say the fbi are now investigating an abduction with ties to the baseball legend cal rib ken jr. his mother was found safe this morning almost 24 hours after being taken from her home at gunpoint. cnn's lisa sylvester's working the story for us. what happened here, lisa? >> hi there, wolf. what we know is this all started about 7:00, 8:00 yesterday morning when a man apparently approached and went to violet ripken's house and abducted her at gunpoint. he then according to authorities spent most of the day driving around in her car throughout central maryland. and it was only until around 8:30 last night when there was a citizen in the neighboring county, in baltimore county, who saw a suspicious vehicle. he called it in to county authorities. and at that point it was that tip that eventually led to violet ripken being found this morning unharmed back near her house in aberdeen. she was however bound. authorities at this point are not clear wha
's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag
gergen is with us from cambridge, massachusetts. david, i don't believe it. i don't know. what do you think? if romney picked condoleezza rice would that not be a game changer? >> it sure would create a lot of buzz just as even the rumor has overnight. coming from matt drudge. you know, it's conventional wisdom within the political community that matt drudge has a direct line to one of mitt romney's top people matt rhodes who is very close in and drudge and rhodes are good friends. so all along drudge has had a pretty good take on it. when he came out and said conned -- condoleezza rice is at the top of the list everybody said wow. i thought this was off the table. look, i think it's more of a trial balloon than anything else. i'm in that camp. the romney people wanted to change the story and get away from bain and get on to other things. it's also true that they could stir things up and sort of put things up in the air and say, conservatives, are you willing to go with this or not? a lot of conservatives think condi rice is too close to george bush sr. and not enough of a foreign pol
